The Refugee Resettlement Hustle

Aug 7, 2017 – Last night at the St. Cloud City Council meeting, residents spoke out on the issue of the sustainability of St. Cloud, MN due to the massive refugee resettlement that has taken place since 2003.

This is about economics and the bottom line is the city council, the federal government & the county commissioners aren’t meeting their obligations of providing transparency.and working for the people of St. Cloud.  People must understand that it isn’t the function of the U.S. Government at any level to secure the freedom and we’ll-being of the world. That duty is owed only to the legal citizens of the United States.

 

THIS is all about LOCAL…

local people affected
local taxes being paid
local schools
local crime rates,
local IMPACT…

Below is a summary from a St. Cloud patriot

Tonight the St. Cloud City Council members made a step forward to an open conversation. Granted a 3-4 vote was not a victory but one more council member decided to vote yes. This is a positive step forward.

We should all understand that we have authority to halt the Refugee Resettlement program in St. Cloud MN, by understanding law and educating those in authority.

8 U.S.C. § 1522(a)(2)(A)  gives city officials the authority to halt or at least have significant influence in the resettlement process. Lutheran Social Services (LSS) understands this authority and limits the city officials from invites, or by not inviting them at all to the quarterly abstract meetings.

Please read the link below and understand your elected city officials have a voice in the Refugee Resettlement process. yet, city officials may have their own views of understanding Federal, state or local laws.  Educate them.  As a team we must educate these officials. E-mail all city Council members. Show them how much you know about this process. City Council member are elected officials, yet, they may be naive to State and Federal codes.

Jeff Johnson and George Hontos and one other stood tall tonight giving voice to their constituents…Imagine a group of citizens with more education, more passion, and more patriotism giving voice from the bow.  Francis Scott Key was and is that example of Patriotism.

Give thanks to those who spoke and will speak.  Great Job! If we cannot connect with the City officials by educating the law and the urgency of conversation, then we must create a campaign to remove them from their elected positions. We have the final word.    

We urge the no voters to read the Federal Law specifications…”Federal Law permits local governments to seek a moratorium on new refugee resettlement activities in their community  if adversely impacting current residents, local government can be permitted to apply to temporarily suspend the additional settlement of refugees. ” 

The Role of States in the Refugee Resettlement Process

Residents Sound Off On Refugee Resettlement


Transcript from a speaker at the open forum:

Mayor.  City Council Members.

The taxpayers and citizens of St Cloud and surrounding area, are here to request that you place on your next meeting agenda, a discussion and approval of a St Cloud Area “Economic impact study and analysis” of the refugee resettlement program and increasing 2nd wave migration from other states.

We are not simply asking for an analysis of the costs—but to be fair—we are asking for a thorough and transparent impact study which includes both costs and benefits of the resettlement of refugees and 2nd wave migration.

As it is estimated that the refugee-immigrant population is currently reaching a quarter of the area population… An honest open discussion of just how many immigrants and refugees that the area can “reasonably absorb”—and  support—is a fair, reasonable, and responsible request.

We request that you work with Stearns county, the school district, state and local government agencies, local medical service providers, police and emergency services, as well as, the agencies which relocate refugees to the area.

While the public-private partnerships between the Federal government and nonprofit agencies, such as, Catholic Charities and Lutheran Immigrant and Refugee Services work together in resettling individuals from 3rd world countries—the taxpayers and local citizens are blocked from meetings held by these agencies—hindering transparency and accountability—as we, the local citizens, are not recognized as “Stake Holders.”

Catholic Charities and Lutheran Immigrant and Refugee Services receive millions in taxpayer dollars annually and many Minnesota business benefit from cheap labor—while local taxpaying citizens are left in the dark but, are expected to silently foot the bill on increased social and welfare services, medical, educational special needs of English Language Learners, and higher demands of police and emergency services…  Simultaneously observing—declining real estate values, a sharp increase in rental housing, negative impacts to local school districts, rising poverty and increasing crime rates.

SCSU’s School of Public Affairs Research Institute provide a Land Use Study for the City of Waite Park titled, “An Analysis of Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunity and Threats.”  The analysis cited a higher crime rate and higher number of police officers per 1,000 residents than the Minnesota average and identified an increasingly high ratio of rental/ownership of housing units, perhaps explaining lower average home sales than the state average.

A City of St Cloud study provided the same observations of an increase of over 66% in rental properties, in addition to rising poverty.

Gentleman, if there is nothing to hide—if the impact of the increasing numbers of immigrants and refugees are not straining the demand on local taxpayers but, are in fact a positive on our historically safe and vibrant community—then there should be no objection to a current, transparent, and accountable economic impact study and analysis so that we may reasonably and responsibly understand the costs and number of additional individuals we may be able to absorb and support in the St Cloud area.

As A Tool To Divide And Conquer
The Layman’s Primer

by Louis Beam

Excerpts: In modern times multiculturalism is instituted from the top down as an elitist ruling class tool used to play one or more racial or ethnic groups against another. The ensuing cultural melee serves the political designs, economic goals and power needs of elitist rulers and their sponsors. This technique was developed by Marxist ideologues who used multiculturalism in Russia to divide and conquer resistance to the institution of a communist state.

Those who sponsor multiculturalism are properly called multiculturalists and generally will be found to be those people with the least amount of personal culture appertaining to them. As a dying tree drops its leaves and is attacked by fungus and worms of decay, so to is a nation set upon by multiculturalists. The dominate culture is attacked from all sides. This is not so much a product of maliciousness as necessity. By vilifying, leveling, and weakening the dominant culture, an environment is created for social, political, and economic turmoil which produces change that will benefit the sponsors of a multiculturalist state. If the government and news media relentlessly pursue issues of race, gender, and diversity in preference to the real issues that need to be addressed, there will be an increasing division of society along the same lines. Which is exactly what the sponsors of multiculturalism want.

Social instability, caused by a steady erosion of standards and values, coupled with a scramble over dwindling economic opportunities by conflicting ethnic groups, produces precisely the alienation and conflict needed to implement a multicultural state. Further, the lack of common standards and values leads to personal disorganization, resulting in unsociable behavior. This is the life support system of a multicultural state. In a word: anomie.

Within the deleterious milieu of multiculturalism exists the propaganda opportunity for re-education of the people into a more malleable entity. A targeted population will be shaped mentally by new forms of public education in the schools, media indoctrination, and by elitist pronouncements. Thus placed in a crucible of economic necessity and social pressure, once free citizens become despondent masses, adjusting to and accepting fundamentally changing national circumstances as a matter of expedient survival. For the reticent, conformity by force will ensue in the form of legal penalties disguised as ant-drug, anti-terrorism, or anti-hate laws. All of this leading toward what George Orwell so aptly predicted in his book 1984:

“Almost certainly we are moving into an age of totalitarian dictatorships. An age in which freedom of thought will be at first a deadly sin and later on a meaningless abstraction.”

A necessary first step toward recovery is to look at politics, social policy, and government emanating from Washington D.C. with new eyes, unclouded by a lifetime of false information and deception propagated by elitist sponsors. Pretending any longer that the bought and paid for political prostitutes in Washington D.C. represent you or anyone you know is tantamount to cutting your own wrist with a razor blade. Self-destructive behavior may qualify one for government “protected class status” under diversity laws–but it will not save you, your family, or your nation.

America, Canada, and most of Europe are ruled by politicians about whom the best that can be said is that they are men of ill repute, each out to loot the state. One thing is clear, the American ruling elite of today are far closer in ideological viewpoint to world government ruled by a privileged few than it is to the world of the American Revolution or the Constitutional Convention of 1789. Yet still, the spirit of 1776 lives on in this land. For once again rebellion to tyrants in obedience to God is afoot. Listen closely and in the distance you can hear the ring of  liberty’s bell calling gallant sons and noble daughters to her aid. They know no left, nor right, only treason. And they will not fear to answer. Let tyrants tremble. And though the heavens fall, let there be justice.

Reading, ‘Riting and ‘Rithmetic, Oh and Reversal of Reality

The innundation of gender identity is everywhere. The Minnesota Department of Education has recently approved a “Toolkit” to provide guidance to school leaders, administrators, and teachers regarding “Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Students.”

The toolkit allows for boys who identify as girls to use the girls’ bathroom, and tells teachers to ask kids what their “preferred pronouns” are.

The toolkit also advises teachers to refer to students as “scholars” rather than girls or boys, and the prom king and queen as “prom ambassadors.”

So what’s really behind the LGBT movement? This debate isn’t being pushed because they care about transgender issues. It’s being used to give them the facade of the moral high ground and simply another political correctness/propaganda movement to suppress free speech. “Like all such deceptions, its sole purpose is as a vehicle to transfer power from individuals to an increasingly centralized state.” Stella Morabito

The LGBT movement is a top-down phenomenon, driven by transnational networks of liberal activists, corporations, governments (particularly the US), international organizations (the UN), and elite donors. This shouldn’t surprise us much. Culture change is typically powered by institutions and elites, observed James Davison Hunter in his book To Change the World—and the transformation of sex and gender norms, and family structure, bears this out. Reality Check: Gender Diversity is Driven by a Top-Down Ideological Movement


“If one can isolate the mass, allow no free thinking, no free exchange, no outside correction and can hypnotize the group daily with noises, with press and radio and television, with fear and pseudo-enthusiasms, any delusion can be instilled,” wrote Dutch psychologist Joost Meerloo in his cleverly titled book The Rape of the Mind. “People will begin to accept the most primitive and inappropriate acts.”

And, by implication, Facebook’s policy is implying that President Trump is no different than a racist because he decided, after consulting with the military, to ban trannies because of the time, costs and efforts to accommodate them, which has little to do with the military’s primary task of national defense.

“Mass delusion is an important tool of oppressors because they can’t survive free expression,” Morabito added. “That’s why the First Amendment’s a target.”FACEBOOK CLAIMS TRANSGENDERS A “PROTECTED CLASS” LIKE RACE

Shut Up Already!

My husband always tells me to get new material. It’s about time the mainstream media and the establishment does the same. Read the article below on U of M athletics lacks diverse leaders.

I’m so sick of the litany of terms that are being shoved down our throats…Diversity, Multiculturalism, White Privilege, Discrimination, Racism, Equality, Microagressions, Hate Speech, Social Justice Warriors, Sexism, Homophobia, Xenophobia, etc. This is the weaponized use of language and is very well organized and well funded to pit races, sexes, classes and orientations against each other. Diversity really means division and is the communist philosophy at work within our government, schools, universities, and corporations.

The narrative is that government can legislate equality and morality, and if they fail, blame becomes the name of the game. Let’s blame everyone except the people creating the welfare/warfare conditions that we are currently under.

“The social engineers that utilize this communist dialectic within American politics, education and media are always sifting through the strata of society looking for supposed “underprivileged” classes to exploit for the sole purpose of expanding the powers of the state. When they find one, they mercilessly play the woes of that class up, via government spokespeople, selective media attention and phony statistics until everyone in society is calling for more government intervention.” Jason Charles


U of M athletics lacks diverse leaders

The University of Minnesota put its top athletic department leaders on a bus earlier this summer, sending them on their annual trip around the state to rev up fan interest among the Gopher faithful.

Those passengers, including men and women head coaches of their 23 teams, shared one thing in common: They were all white.

The U, once a leader in athletic department diversity, now trails most of its peers. A Star Tribune analysis of senior athletics leadership, including the athletic director, senior assistant ADs and head coaches, at the 14 schools that make up the Big Ten found Minnesota tied for last with Nebraska, Wisconsin and Michigan State in number of minorities in those positions: one each.

Almost a quarter of the U’s student athletes are nonwhite, and in big-money sports like men’s basketball and football, the ratio of minority athletes is even higher. It’s been four years since the U had a minority head coach, and more than a decade since it last hired one. The last time a person of color served as Minnesota’s athletic director or deputy athletic director was 18 years

“We should be embarrassed,” said Al Nuness, a former basketball player and hall-of-fame member of the M Club, the Gophers’ official alumni group. “Especially when you look at the metropolitan area we live in, which is praised for quality of life and opportunity for people of color. And our university doesn’t reflect any of that.”

The absence of black or nonwhite coaches and athletics leaders at the U is in sharp contrast to what’s happening nationally. In the Big Ten, 59 of the 355 head coaches are minorities, a 10 percent increase since 2010. At major conference schools, the number of minority ADs has increased 9 percent since 2010, according to NCAA data reviewed by the Star Tribune.

Overcriminalization

Mainstream Media Now Advocating “All Citizens” Spend Time In Prison As “Service” To Country

By Claire Bernish

Corporate media achieved a new level of absurdity last week, when Jesse Ball, writing for the Los Angeles Times, suggested every American be required to spend a stint behind bars every ten years as a veritable guarantee to improve conditions of incarceration in the United States.

In the piece titled, “Everyone should go to jail, say, once every ten years,” Ball writes,

A notable demand that is made upon the citizens of the United States of America is that of jury duty. Although many despise, hate and avoid it, there is a general sense that the task is necessary. We believe a society is only just if everyone shares in the apportionment of guilt.

To this demand of jury duty, I would like to add another, and in the same spirit. I propose that all citizens of the United States of America should serve a brief sentence of incarceration in our maximum-security penitentiaries. This service, which would occur for each person once in a decade, would help ensure that the quality of life within our prisons is sufficient for the keeping of human beings.

Without foreknowledge on length of stay and other details, citizens would languish behind the same bars as convicted criminals under Ball’s proposal — albeit in a section separated from offenders, assumedly not to confuse jailers and inmates, or endanger anyone serving ‘incarceration duty.’

But Ball misses the point — feeding the elephant in the room of overcriminalization of daily life, excessive laws, and, worst by far of all, the normalization of incarceration as conditional to the American way of life — lecturing all of us to walk a mile in the shoes of the convicted rather than declaring the brazen failures of the Injustice System evidence enough, itself, for dismantling the whole dysfunctional mess.

After all, according to the Prison Policy Institute, the United States now cages some 2.3 million of its roughly 326.5 million total people — the largest per capita incarcerated persons of any nation on the entire planet.

An interplanetary traveler would logically conclude it a prison nation — or, at least, one astonishingly rife with thugs, murderers, thieves, and worse.

Even the more law-and-order, authoritarian among us could see the flaws evident in a system claiming freedom, while locking away proportionally more than even the dictatorial fascist regimes our troops putatively combat.

While undoubtedly posited from a place of compassion as a plea for ethics in imprisonment, Ball’s somewhat tongue-in-cheek proposal unfortunately evinces the frequency with which Band-aids are applied as a fix for gaping structural flaws which should otherwise condemn the system to demolishment.                      

But, worst of all, this proposition capriciously normalizes the American Incarceration State.

Consider how those 2.3 million souls wound up stuffed into the cramped confines of the nation’s myriad federal, state, and local facilities; or, worse — judging by a voluminous body of anecdotal accounts — one of the altogether notorious prisons-for-profit, managed by private corporations intent only on thrift in housing its human commodities to save the State some pennies.

Most of the convicted behind bars have committed nonviolent crime — but moralizing on personal vice and legislation enacted sanctimoniously against substances have exploded the nation’s prison population to alarming proportions.

A court or jury decision of guilt in no way can be characterized on par with ‘laws’ governing ethics and human rights — for, if a candid observation of inmate records were ventured, a sweeping sum could be said to have landed in prison by violating the State’s prohibition on the cannabis plant.

And not violently so.

Forgetting for a moment ‘the law is the law,’ to describe a society as just, which chooses to not only cement unjust ideas into law, but imprison violators of aberrant legislation — particularly in cases of medicinal use — must be the pinnacle of hypocritical pomposity, if not the telltale heart of a dying empire.

Sure, forcing (on penalty of prison?!) yet more behind bars to prove how base the conditions behind bars might actually assist the vocal calling to improve conditions behind bars, but if so many have been locked there for reasons only justifiable for the violation interned in the print of legal tomes, the plan is an exercise in pure futility.

Unless it simply normalizes prison life as a veritable inevitability — might as well prepare for the eventuality some offensive chunk of life will be wasted rotting between the torrid walls of a prison cell.

The irony, palpable.

No, we do not need to send the relatively innocent to prison to endure torturously foul food and varying degrees of inhospitability to prove locking people in cages does nothing to curb crime — indeed, the opposite is arguably true.

New UltraBeam Tactical Laser (Ad)

It’s the system, broken — not people’s compassion.

Juries convict based on flawed evidence, evidence omitted by technicality, and an embarrassing list of other inexcusable conditions accumulated on the books over centuries — and more laws and regulations find their way to the ledger every day.

They’re creating additional ways to make you a criminal — so, in that sense, Ball might be onto something.

‘Get ready for prison, dear young people, by the time you’re an adult, there won’t be a thing you can do without somehow breaking the law,’ the writer unintentionally asserts between the lines.

“I wonder,” Ball continues, “once all you citizens of the United States are passing in and out of prison on a regular basis, will the conditions there not seem singularly urgent? Just picture congressmen, priests, stock traders, truck drivers, people of every faith, color, description, all for once sharing in something.”

Sharing in the memory of peering out from inside prison walls isn’t conducive to solving the issue of mass incarceration.

Scrapping unjust, unethical, amoral, and otherwise ludicrous laws governing every conceivable aspect of daily life, however, is.
